Tramway Line A


By train

Since the 2nd of July 2018, Brest moved closer to Paris! With the LGV, Brest is just 3h25 of the capital.
Brest train station is located in the heart of the city 400 meters from Le Quartz and 500 meters from the Freedom Square, ideal starting point to explore the city that is served by all public transport. But on arrival the first thing to do is perhaps to direct you to the gazebo (just to the left when you exit the station) to fully enjoy the view of the harbor.
